Sweet Potato-Leek Gratin

Doesn't this one look good???

Baked Sweet Leek and sweet potato gratin

From Vegetarian times, Feb 2009

  • 1 1/2 Tbs EVOO, divided
  • 3 medium leeks, white and green parts chopped (6 cups)
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 Tbs chopped fresh rosemary, divided
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8 in thick slices
  • 1/2 cup veggie broth
  • 3 Tbs Italian dry breadcrumbs

!. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and spray a 10 inch round pan.

2. Saute leeks garlic and half the rosemary, about 8 min (in a Tbs EVOO)

3. Arrange 1/3 sweet potatoes over bottom of pan, overlapping slightly, spread half leek mixture on top. Repeat. Drizzle broth over, cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes.

4. stir breadcrumbs, rosemary and EVOO together, remove foil, sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake 15 more minutes.

**** Try adding nutritional yeast to each layer and make the bread crumbs from scratch and add nutritional yeast. Gonna be delicious!


  1. YUM...have u made it yet? I have some sweet potatoes...no leeks though. Think I could use onions or green onions instead?


  2. Leeks have a bit of a different flavor for me. I think I'd use yellow onions instead of green if given the choice. Lemme know how it goes?
